"I Don't Wanna Hear Another Sound", by Norah Jones

Con la chica esta me debato, desde que se hizo famosa, entre ignorarla o cagarla a piñas por afectadita. La vengo ignorando, porque, ante todo, soy pacifista, y la piba vive lejos. (Las "revelaciones del jazz", como esta y Diana Krall, me la traen floja, diría un español.)
Pero, esta canción que rueda en Radio Paradise, me re gusta y más. La frase que titula tiene ese fastidio que tan bien me ilustra a mí y mi carácter "encantador"; y me hace acordar al "Paso de tanta tontería" de acá. Dale que va:

Hasta merece tener la letra:

My balance was gone, but so is the pain
Was waitin’ around, but you never came.
So I ran into Tony,
He grabbed on my body,
I told him I missed you,
He told me he loved me.
And hey, I liked the way he said my name.
That’s all he had to say

The damage is done, but so is the wait
And I tried not to run cause it would be a mistake.
But it would be a mistake if I just took my time
Cause I’d be waiting around just to pay for your crimes.
And hey, I know what it takes to be wrong but it feels all right to me

Even though I know you let me down
I don’t know why I can’t come around.
And even though I know my mind is sound
Couldn’t walk away from what I’ve found.

Your honesty’s good but too much is bad,
And I’ve been trying to hold on to something I’ve never had
Cause I’ve never had you just as I have you now
That you’re afraid of losin’ but you’re not scared enough.
Hey wait, you wipe that smile right off of your face
Cause I don’t know where it came from.

Even if I know I won’t be found
I will still be hiding underground.
Even if I go outside I find
You’ve already left me far behind.

Even when this song comes crashing down,
I don’t wanna hear another sound.
No, I don’t wanna hear another sound.

¿Por qué querrías cagar a trompadas a Norah Jones?
Me encanta su trabajo y bien merecido tiene el reconocimiento.
